Hat tip to Helen’s Dad for this little tidbit overseen in Key Biscayne:
He writes of his encounter with a member of the fire department’s personnel:
One of the firemen was walking by when I was taking that photo. He agreed it was incorrect — he’s trying to teach his kids proper English. Then I told him I was taking the photo for my friend’s grammar blog. He said, “What? A grammar blog.” I explained what it was and he didn’t answer, just started walking away. I hollered, “I guess you don’t want the link?” He turned around and guffawed. Guy just doesn’t know what he’s missing.
Guffawed? Don’t worry, MRP’s not taking it personally.
